LED bulbs have been around for a long time. Recently, a unique incident involving LED bulb has surprised everyone. An Indian boy who is 9 years of age has become a local celebrity after claiming he can light electric bulbs by simply touching it.
There are also several video footages which are showing Abu Thahir from Alapuzzha, Kerala, India, lighting LED bulbs with his bare hands and feet. The ability to light up bulbs was discovered accidentally. His electrician father Nazir brought home a bulb from work and asked him to keep it. However, it lit up as he held it. As per reports, his family feels his ‘skill’ is genuine, and while the video does show the bulbs lighting up, the camera doesn’t show his complete body. This could mean it is possible that the electricity is made to enter his body via one of his limbs and that his body acting as a conductor. According to research, humans have different levels of resistance and electric currents, which can have more or less of an effect on individuals, depending on voltage, duration and current pathway.
One local said: ‘According to his father, he bought a bulb and after returning to home, he handed it over to Thahir to keep it safely on a rack’. But as soon as Thahir held it the bulb lit up. Considering it as some prank, Nazir scolded Thahir to stop, but Thahir could not’.
‘Shocked Nazir pressed the bulb to other parts of his body and to his amusement, the moment he pressed it to Thahir, it again lit up. He repeated it only to learn any part of his son’s body was able to light the bulb. He considers it as a gift given by God to his son.’
